A pregnant woman delivered a baby after being mowed down by a speeding truck in Firozabad district of Uttar Pradesh. The woman died instantly after delivering the baby.
The woman and her husband were on their way on a bike. Reportedly, the husband lost control of the bike while attempting to move away from a speeding car coming from another direction.
The 26-year-old victim fell on the road in this and a speeding truck coming from behind mowed her down. The truck driver fled the scene after hitting the woman.
The badly injured woman went into labour on the road and delivered a healthy baby girl. Eye witnesses, according to several reports, couldn’t believe their eyes.
While the husband and the baby are safe, the woman can not be saved.
“The condition of the girl is fine. Two doctors have been engaged for her treatment,” the principal of the medical college where the baby girl is admitted, Dr Sangeeta Aneja, was quoted by News18 as saying.
Also, a group of doctors from the district hospital ran some tests on the baby and found that she was absolutely fine.
“A complaint has been registered against the truck driver and he will be traced soon,” a police officer told The Times of India.
He further added that CCTV footage from nearby CCTV cameras is being examined.
